The best way to live is as a constant student.
When we fall out of love with learning, with improving, we sacrifice compounding returns and we close our mind. When we close our mind, we risk getting left behind, simple as that.
I’m a voracious note-taker. On conversations, on books I read, on every single idea. I write down ideas for sitcoms, television shows, movies, businesses, articles, books, philosophies, songs and life.

I would help anyone who carries a notepad around…
I know that person is committed to learning and improving, which means that they’re someone worth helping. If you’re carrying a notepad around, I’m sure you’ll do great things.
To carry around a notepad is to carry around a reminder that we must be students all the way through life, right up until the last page, crinkled and weathered by the sands of time, is turned.
